Left and Right CV axle install help
« on: May 26, 2014, 06:32:42 PM »
Hey guys,

Just wondering if you all have done any cv axles before..

I have a 2001 GTI VR6 and have bought both left and right cv axles to replace the old ones..(getting shaking during acceleration)

let me know here or in a pm thanks!

Most of us drive slow Volkswagens so the main function they serve is to drive around town and look pretty.

What happened with barkeeps car?

The coils he wanted us to install were missing front hardware and had incorrect rear hardware. A two hour install turned into a three night ordeal of fabricating some parts and jerry-rigging others. It's been road worthy for over a year, but it was a terrible experience that I hope to never repeat.

What's funny is that Mark (blue.0) had the same coils on his mkiii and we had zero problems with them. Hmmm...
